Community Pride

September 20, 2014 http://bit.ly/10l4buS 

Saturday is a beautification day, though today it is not at home.  (Drat!)  Do you ever participate in projects in your area?  I love the community pride that comes with a cleanup, though wish people felt enough personal accountability that they wouldn't throw their trash around to begin with.  (steps off soapbox)
Talking about community...I recently joined a new one not limited to a specific locale.  It is a group of people who are passionate about supporting handmade goods and small business and building our ability to get seen by the masses.  The Handmade Forum was started by a very dedicated Katie Joy and today I am celebrating her efforts and products.
Katie Joy has a great eye for fashionable, youthful pieces.  I would never dream these up (I'm a stones, wire and re-purposed leather girl), but would definitely wear them or give them as gifts.  Take a look...


Cute, right?  
Oh, and this piece really makes me think of Halloween and candy corn:


I am horrible at costumes, so this would be something I might cheat with and call my costume.  It would also be a great addition to a modern suit or dress.  Love versatile pieces!
I would encourage you to take a look at her shop and see the many other beautiful baubles and bangles there.  

Alrighty...I am off to clean.  Hope you all do something to support your community today.  Cheers!
